    Using the Runes

    I'm a noob - to paganism, to runes, to magic, the works - and it'll be apparent when I ask my questions:

    Is there a kind of person who is better at using runes than others?
    Do the runes actually choose the user?
    I know it helps to make your own magical tools, but if the runes do the choosing, does that even matter?

    Is this a stupid series of questions?

    It's all on the caster, I think. Dedication, honest faith, practice, technique, etc. make for a great reader, not $100 runes, and not being 'selected' or something along those lines. I think people just like to blame the runes themselves for their inability to read them.

    I am just learning runes. I think in general some people are better at certain things than other. Cards, auras, runes, spells, potions are all specialties. Runes are one thing I would recommend someone make once they are comfortable with them.

    Yes, one who feels a connection to them.

    I'm not sure I understand the question.

    Making your own anything is just a simple way of attuning it to your energy and needs. You CAN use store bought for anything. Runes, wands, scrying mirrors...... The big thing is not to get sucked into spending oodles of money on shiny toys.

    Also depends on which deity you are connected to,
    A typical war god won't be able to help with divination that much...
